Blogging for the enemy: At The Hive
Game Time: 8:00pm
TV: Sun Sports/NBA TV Radio: 940 WINZ
Probable starters:
Kenny Hasbrouck PG Chris Paul
Patrick Beverly SG Marco Belinelli
Mike MIller SF Trevor Ariza
Chris Bosh PF Jason Smith
Joel Anthony C Emeka Okafor


  • Sitting out for the Heat are LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carlos Arroyo, Eddie House and Jamaal Magloire.
  • For New Orleans, David West will not play tonight.
  • Miami has lost 7 of their last 9 regular season meetings with the Hornets.
  • On the second night of a back-to-back, I'd expect a similar rotation to the one used last weekend in San Antonio. Brace yourselves Heat fans, this one could get ugly.
  • Mario Chalmers also sititng out for the Heat so Pat Beverly and Kenny Hasbrouck will have another opportunity to show their skills.
  • Chris Bosh will only play a limited number of minutes...probably just the first quarter.
